COLLECTIONS | Sarah Myerscough Gallery

23 JUNE - 21 OCTOBER 2023

Sarah Myerscough Gallery will be marking its its 25th Anniversary this June - celebrating with the artist-designer-makers that made it all possible. Featured works by Eleanor Lakelin include a series of totemic column vessels in horse chestnut burr.

"‘Collections’ will be an immersive and representative curation of our key collections. The show will weave together the makers, materials and objects who express the vision and mandate of the gallery; expect signature works from our famous and familiar names, as well as new directions, deviations and developments.

Work in wood remains the focus and first love of the gallery; this exhibition will showcase a full spectrum of the most exciting contemporary work being made in wood across the globe today. Raw and highly worked, scorched, turned, foraged, transformed into intricate veneers, cast or coated in bronze, worked via CNC and untamed flame, warped, sandblasted and bleached - but always remaining inherently respectful of the material in itself.

The work expresses a deep and lasting bond between maker and material, founded upon that respect. The exhibition is, as such, a collection of conversations with material, each teased out by the individual maker and led by their material’s quirks, intentions and history. We will show objects in wood from Eleanor Lakelin, Julian Watts, Katrien Doms, Micheal Peterson and sculptural furniture from Gareth Neal, Nic Webb, John Makepeace OBE, and Egeværk."

Monday - Friday 10am - 6pm
Saturday 10am - 4pm
